Ship Facts: Jewel of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Jewel of the Seas Deck Plans
Just returned from the 10-day Ultimate Caribbean Cruise and it was fantastic! We were celebrating our 25th Anniversay. This was the longest we have ever cruised. Prior cruises were out of Port Canaveral for 3-4 days to the Bahamas. This was so much better.

We were in Cabin 7502 which is the very front of the ship looking straight out to where the ship is sailing. The bed was very comfortable. There was also a couch with a coffee table, so you could watch tv without always having to sit or lay on the bed. There was plenty of storage space for all of our clothes in the drawers and the closet shelves. We stored our suitcases under the bad and then used them as hampers for the dirty clothes. This made packing on the last night a snap.

I agree with navysquid about the deck chairs. We also had trouble finding spots. It was obvious that people rushed up there early morning and put out towels and books and then left for breakfast or whereever. There are signs everywhere stating that if no one is at a chair for over 30 minutes then the personal items will be picked up and the chair made available for others. However, this was NEVER enforced. On the last sea day, I personally sat next to two chairs that had towels and books on them, but no people for over an hour and a half.

The food was great in both the dining room and at Portofino's and Chopps. We thoroughly enjoyed the personal attention and intimate dining room of the specialty restaurants. Only complaint, which is minor, is that the portions are way too large. If we had been in a restaurant at home, we would have taken it home to enjoy the next day. Obviously no way to do that here, so a lot of food is wasted. We did My Time Dining and had prebooked our times before arriving at the ship. We mostly had the same Waiters. One day we had a late lunch so we easily changed our dinner reservaiton for another time. They were very accommodating.
